Some of my very favorite things to make are quick projects that can be done 20 minutes! They make great last-minute gifts, or when you find yourself needing many of something! The Karis Keychain is perfect for this! These work up so quick and can easily be customized by adding charms or beads as well.

The Karis Keychain has a feather-like boho feel, perfect for those who are lovers of the boho-modern looks.
The pattern is worked back and forth in rows using only the back loop. Add tassels or charms to personalize even more!
I’ve used the beautiful Furls Wander yarn for these. I love that this is a bit thinner worsted weight yarn, and the bit sheen gives the Karis Keychain that perfect finishing touch.

Single Crochet 3 Together (sc3tog): Insert hook into next st (or ch), pull up a loop, 2 loops on hook, insert hook into next st (or ch), pull up a loop, 3 loops on hook, insert hook into next st (or ch), pull up a loop, 4 loops on hook, yarn over, pull through all 4 loops.
Row 1: 2sc in the 2nd ch from the hook, sc in the next 2 chs, sc3tog, sc in the next 2 chs, 2sc in the last ch, ch1, turn (9).
Row 2-12: 2scblo in the firts st, scblo in the next 2 sts, sc3tog in the back loop only, scblo in the next 2 sts, 2scblo.in the last st, ch1, turn (9).
Row 13: Sc2tog in the back loop only in the first 2 sts, scblo in the next st, sc3tog in the back loop only, scblo in the next st, sc2tog in the back loop only in the last 2 sts, ch1, turn (5).
Row 14: Scblo in the first st, sc3tog in the back loop only, scblo in the last st, tie off, leaving a long tail to attach keychain (3).
Attaching the keychain may look different depending on the type of ring you are using.
Using the long tail, thread it through the opening of the keyring, sc around the ring to secure the ring. Use your discretion for how many sts may be needed, I did 4 sc for mine.
Tie off, and weave in all ends.
Make and attach tassels or any adornments if desired and you’re done!
